Do you want your home decor to resonate with the chic interiors of a hotel? Well, it is possible to create that vibe in your home with minimal effort. Rajiv Rajgopal, Managing Director at AkzoNobel India, and Parul Mittal, Director, Greenlam Industries Ltd, share how one can combine hotel chic with the real house warmth.

* One of the quickest ways to give home a hotel inspired make-over is opting for accent walls. Hotels use accent walls to create a focal point by use of a colour that stands out.

* To bring in the whimsical vibe of hotel décor, choose a palette which is elegant but relaxed, with whimsical and playful touches. For example, a gently muted mix of romantic powder pinks (super candy) and blues create (satin blue) calm, with spiced honey bringing depth and sophistication to the look. Plain, pale wood, simple hand-made vessels and pretty fabrics add to the contemplative, centred feel of this home.

* Real wood flooring is one element that is timeless and is always incorporated in hotel rooms. Premium engineered wood floors are perfect to add an elegant touch that gives your home an ultra-modern vibe.

* Bring in a vivid combination through a stunning white couch with a combination of emerald green and black and white chevron patterned cushions. Add side tables in light tanned laminates to balance the look of the room.

* Layering textures is another element that is excessively used in hotels. Textures have a tactile element to them and never fail to create an authentic and rich look to your interiors. Bring in a variety of layers through throw blankets, cushions and faux rugs along with textured laminates which look breath-taking without being heavy on your pockets. (IANS)

Are you looking to decorate your house on a budget? Or you simply want a touch of your personality and talent in your home? Well, whatever the reason maybe, here are 6 do-it-yourself (DIY) home décor ideas for your home:

Make a garden in your living room

Many of us love gardening but have no space for it so we keep potted plants in our balconies. But if you think about modern living room ideas for your home, you could have your own garden on your living room wall! You can create a green wall by placing a few wooden slabs of different lengths to create a pattern and place your potted plants on those slabs. Now, it won’t be just your TV up on the wall. 

Recycle your glass bottles and jars into vases and bulbs

Take any unused glass bottles (any colour) and paint them. Fill them with water and place flowers in them to make vases. You could also use the bottles as bulbs by placing fairy lights in them and hanging them from your walls or placing them on your tables. This will add some coloured lighting to your florescent lighting. 

Make a vision board

Take some excess or unused fabric you have and cover it on a wooden board. You have the option to add cotton on the board to make it like a bulletin board. Then print pictures, quotes, or any ‘visions’ of your future goals and stick them on this board. Hang this vision board in your room to remind yourself of your goals every day. 

Light up your house

If you have any unused paper cups from a previous get together, string them together and place LED lights inside to make a garland of paper cups and hang them in your house. Another way to light up your home would be to place candles inside mason jars. You could decorate the jar with lace, yarn, ribbon, cloth, etc. You could also decorate the candles with henna (mehndi). These also work great as Diwali decoration ideas

Make a floating bookshelf

Take panels of wood or metal and drill them to the corner of a wall in asymmetrical fashion. Ensure you have at least 4 or more slabs for enhanced effect. Once completed, it will look like they are floating on the wall. Then you can place your books on the slabs to complete your bookshelf.

Make a mural

A mural is a form of art directly painted or applied on a wall. If you don’t see yourself as a great artist, you could invite a friend over and paint a wall in your house with things that inspire you or come up with a theme that will add to the décor of your home.
